. the same week a government report revealing some major misuse in a green grant. 150 million taxpayer dollars going to electric battery company where inspectors found employees playing video games, card games, cards, working at animal shelters, all while on the clock. and the only batteries they're building, so far they're in south korea. we keep hearing stories like this. so at a time when we're desperately looking for places to cut the federal budget, is this a perfect place to start? hi, everybody. welcome to "forbes on fox." let's go in with steve forks, rick you thinker, elizabeth mcdonald, morgan brennan, rich carlguard and mike. steve, if you want to cut waste, is this the place to start? >> sure, david. green energy a great place to save green dollars. if green energy had any promise, entrepreneurs would be in on it. in terms of clean energy, we have it in our backyard with natural gas, remove obstacles to that, we'll have all the clean energy we want and need and export it. >> rick, you're against government waste. this was an incredibly wasteful program. is this the place we
industry, automobile industry, the public education and literally they're bankrupting government as well. they're only growing in government. unions account for about 36% of government workers. only 6% in the private work force. i tell you, the nerve of richard trumka and the unions to demand jobs. where do they get off with that? we have more government workers now than we had citizens of the countries founded in 1776 and so many of them have nothing to do with actually protecting individual rights. they're educators, library workers, researchers. they should be cut. we need to be cut. and unions need to take a back seat and actually put this country first for once. >> sequestration threatened some spending and unions say, hey, wait a minute. let's not go to sequestration. you might threaten some of our spending n guess what, mr. trumka is right. this is our country. god bless us. they're asking for more money? did you just see the debt clock, over $16 trillion, eric. this country is in trouble. the money is gone. they're asking for more, but guess what? they've got a president that's w
@5:00. the top five stories making news at this hour. the government now being sued accused of covering up details and being neglect in the shooting of two immigration and customs enforcement agent. he was shot dead in 2011 in mexico by members of a drug cartel. his partner victor avila was seriously wounded. they say the guns were smuggled to the u.s. as part of a failed gun operation and the agent should not have been sent on such a dangerous mission. >> chuck hagel narrowly cleared his first hurdle. the senate committee had a 14-11 party line vote. >> the feat of this nomination say he is leaderless as we have budgetary challenges and we are engaged in combat operations overseas. >> the performance before this committee is the worst i have seen for any nominee for office. he refused to answer a straight forward question as to whether the surge was a success or not. >> hagel's nomination heads for a vote in the full senate. jim imhoff has threatened to filibuster his nomination over concerns about views on israel and iran. a live look at pope benedict xvi holding a weekly audience at the
that the fed, federal government outlines has higher unemployment than those states with lower minimum wage. look, it's simple economics, something which this current administration doesn't understand. when you raise the cost of labor, you have a surplus of labor, that's true in comments, stocks, whatever. when you have a surplus of labor, what do you have, brenda? you have higher unemployment and simple as that, this administration doesn't understand. >> so what do you think of that, caroline, would this help or hurt unemployment if we just got rid of the minimum wage? >> well, i think that would be a terrible idea and i disagree with gary b. actually those studies have experienced-- that's a relationship, other variables causing those differences because two decades of rigorous research indicate he when you do it in a planful way and mild way and raise the minimum wage that it has a positive effect on the local economy. positive effects in terms of lower training costs and turnover and less lost time at work and dedicated employees, so small businesses, mid size and large businesses benef
a march 1st deadline for the across-the-board government cuts known as the sequester. >> this is not a game. this is reality. >> i don't like the sequester. it's taking a meat axe to our government. >> these steps would seriously damage the fragile american economy. >> still fragile enough that four years after the recession the u.s. economy actually shrank in the last three months of 2012. the storm clouds were ready to blow away and washington basically called them back. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. >> if not for indecisive, uncompromising, and polarizing politicians, america's economy could take off again. >> we are producing more energy and america can become an energy exporter. >> we're in the midst of an energy boom and it's lowering the price of electricity and bringing manufacturing back to america. a housing boom fueled by the lowest interest rates in history. and 35 months of private sector job creation. america's future could be great. >> i'd like to focus on what lies beyond the fiscal debate. >> i'd like to, too. but
inspections and those kinds of things. >> what government is actually capable of doing? i mean, you talk about the economy and jobs. there is, obviously, debate how many jobs have been created in the economy. look. you pointed out to apple tim cook in the audience in the state of the union and sitting on over $171 million in cash at apple. why? because uncertainty in the marketplace. tom friedman writing this morning something that caught my eye. he said you can feel the economy wants to launch but washington is sitting on the national mute button. we the people feel like the children of permanently divorcing parents. >> how does this sequester business end? the president said during the campaign the sequester, the word for automatic spending cuts, he said it would not happen. is it going to happen? >> i always read tom friedman has the good minnesota sensibility. the column today i think is continuation of that. frankly i believe a continuation of exactly the plan the president laid out in detail in the state of the union on tuesday night. we have already made 2.5 trillion dollars in deficit
on familiar themes. making the case that government has a vital role to play in promoting a thriving economy. >> it is not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad based growth. >> a new play on the famous bill clinton line. president tackled his biggest challenge, the economy, by invoking a phrase he used a lot during the 2012 campaign. the middle class. >> the true engine of america's economic growth a rising, thriving middle class. middle class. prosperity. broad shared, built on a thriving middle class. a growing economy that creates good middle class jobs. >> and taking a page from the last democratic president, bill clinton, president obama offered what seemed like a laundry list of poll tested ideas on the economy, education and energy. >> raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour. to make high quality preschool available to every single child in america. i'm announcing the launch of three more of these manufacturing hopes. a new college scorecard that parents and students can use. i propose we use some of our oil and gas reven
government itself. we'll talk about smoking out our adversaries. the failure of opposition like today' puny pathetic reaction from the other side. tonight the crazed unequal day we heard in washington. this large but unmistakable declaration of how small has become this right leaning opposition. small, squeaky, and spiteful. i'm joined by amy klobuchar. and chuck todd. a democratic president made this pronouncement about a government in america. >> we have work to give the american people. a smaller, less bureaucratic government in washington. and we have to give the people one that lives within its means. the era of big government is over. >> last night this president barack obama gave a strong role and criticized republicans who say we must balance the budget. take a listen. >> it is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many. and not just the few. over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion. mostly through spending cuts but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1% of americans. we
to benghazi, something that has nothing do with chuck hagel, who wasn't even in the government at the time. today, the unprecedented step came to a head. that failed to get the 60 votes needed. that mob at the gate headed over >> what are republicans really trying to do? nbc's kelly o'donnell is at the capital tonight. let me just tell you this, i'm going to ask you, why are they doing this? why are they holding up a cabinet appointment? >> for some of them, it is about chuck hagel wanting to know more, who were not a part of committee. they just all received. they make it very clear. it's not personal, they say. it is a tool within the rules of the senate. they say the only tool they have to try to extract from the administration information they did not willingingly give. so case in point, there are two things that have happened because they put up this resistance. >> today, they received a letter and they believed that that is a credit to the white house, that they've now given them that information. they're satisfied, for now, on that. expect more questions, chris u when joan brennan,
info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports today that anti-hagel groups are right now hoping for exactly that. quote, leaders of th
with government, they chose one that i like. here it goes. >> two... one. >> bret: nine golfers from campbell university simultaneous putt. another look at it. this is from the pga management school and they all get it to drop at once. that is a special. fair and balanced and unafraid. >> shep: this is the fox report. tonight from the coastguard, now we know what caused that fire on board the carnival ship triumph but the investigation is far from over. >> shep: plus the untimely death of mindy mccready. >> if i would do things so differently if i could go back and do things differently. >> she had plenty of regret and those issues were apparently too much to bear. from rehab to a custody fight to an alleged affair with an all-star pitcher. the life and early death of mindy mccready. >> a cover girl shot dead and star athlete. did he murder his girlfriend in a fit of jealousy or roid rage? possible new evidence in the valentine's day killings. >> plus, we saw an asteroid just miss earth and meteor slam into russia yet another over california and now a fireball over florida. >> it was very lar
't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect us to agree on every issue. but though expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromiseeyough expect us to p the nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromiseugh expect us to put e nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromisegh expect us to put t nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromise expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> president obama urging compromise as he lays out his vision, but will republicans buy it. >>> cruise from hell. more details on board that carnival cruise ship. can i slowly limping its way back to alabama. there is sewage in the hallways. sorry to be sharing those details at this hour of the morning. welcome to a special edition of "early start". >> lots to get to this morning as we hit 5:00 here in washington, d.c.. just a few hours ago really president obama who was challenging congress to act, it was his state of the union address that was a response to from senator mar
willingly whether it's in government, whether it's in your office? i mean it just doesn't happen. so i think that the irony here, one of them, is that this man who many people associate with the middle ages is going to go down in history as a modernizer because he really showed this modern reality and was the first, you know, even 600 years ago when it happened, it happened to heal a schism. this is happening because he, a, sees we're living longer now, but, b, sees for all the incense and candlelight around the papacy, it's also a job, and there are certain requirements of the job, and if you can't do it, what he's saying and voting with his feet, is that you need to leave. >> well said. >> amen. >> i think it shows a lot of humility. in april of 2005 when pope john paul ii died, we broadcasted "hardball" from rome. as we closed our last show from there, let's listen. look at these people standing for hours, day and night, through the avenues of rome, packed together as if they had been caught and crushed in an industrial strength trash compacter. there they stood seeking no edge, plotting
it on the table. you can make $86,000 a year in income and still get a government subsidy under obama care. people are leaving the private sector because the companies can't afford to offer obama care. if you want to look at ways to find $1.2 trillion in savings over the next decade let's look at obama care. let's don't detroy the military and cut blindly across the board. the president promised it wouldn't happen. he is the commander in chief. on his watch we will begin to unravel the finest military in the history of the world at a time we need it most. the iranians are watching us and we are allowing people to be destroyed and slaughtered in syria. i'm disappointed in our commander in chief. >> chris: senator graham thanks for joining us today. we will follow both the sequestration and the hagel nomination. up next, the voice of the tea party. senator rand paul who gave his own response to the president's mine was earned in djibouti, africa, 2004. the battle of bataan, 1942.

in public for months. government delayed his inauguration last month but on friday government officials published these pictures of him with his daughters. he is now breathing through a tube that makes speaking difficult. either way, his return could allow the government to rally support for his would be successor if in fact he has returned. steve harrigan, we can't confirm much of anything. they haven't released pictures of him? >> strange details but the logical explanation that he is such bad shape there were no cameras on his return. the return happened at 2:30 in the morning and that is why he was holed up in cuba for the past ten weeks. he is breathing through a tube but the bigger question, can he think, is he running the country? this is basic questions about the opposition but they did not get answers to. >> shep: it would appear he hasn't been good for the people in the first place? >> reporter: he has been good for the poor inside venezuela. he as increased spending on medication and education for the poor but he is no friend. u.s. it would be hard to find more anti-u.s. agai
. >> anna: good luck to you. coming up on fox and friends, here is the message from the government you never thought you would hear, hire criminals or else. all in the name of equal opportunity -- are you kidding me? donald trump weighs in. another drink please, you won't feel about booze here because it's also charity. details on one of the best ideas ever. that is coming up. ♪ ♪ ♪ stouffer's is proud to make america's favorite lasagna... with hand-layered pasta, tomatoes, and real mozzarella cheese. but what makes us even prouder... is what our real dinners can do for your family. stouffer's. let's fix dinner. how do you keep an older car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed you got to bring it in. if your tires need to be rotated, you have to get that done as well. jackie, tell me why somebody should bring they're car here to the ford dealership for service instead of any one of those other places out there. they are going to take care of my car because this is where it came from. price is right no problem, they make you feel l
about government overreach than solving real problems. he says, where were they talking about school safety. why aren't we talking about hardening the targets. the president has been very skeptical about that and didn't say anything about it in his state of the union. >> you've got a packed "meet the press." you've got john mccain, denis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, and i want to start with sort of some obvious questions that mcdonough's going to face. chuck hagel watching this. the president is not going to get forced to pull back on this. >> he got re-elected and he wants his guy. the guy he wants is someone he's sympa sympatico with. he'll have to deal with these republicans who have this personal vendetta against him. he does carry this baggage. and i think these performance issues have not helped. his performance in his confirmation hearing did not make people inside the white house more confident about him. but, again, second term presidents, their level of confidence, who they want for the reasons they want them carry the day. >> john mccain, we saw all sides
of that slowing down the workings of government. but i actually think that john mccain's -- >> you know, though, richard that in the end, we're hearing in the end most likely he's going to pass and be secretary of defense. so why hold him up over a recess when the pentagon desperately needs somebody at the helm? >> because in a funny sort of way, joe, it's exactly what mccain said. it's a way of getting their pound of flesh. it's a way of sending a message to hagel. and it's just a way of almost acting out the kind of rancor and just the dislike that is out there. >> you seem awfully calm about this and resolved that this is just the way washington works. does this not trouble you at all? >> of course it troubles me, but it's also just the way that washington works. i do think in the end chuck hagel will get the job. and as you say, this is not about defense policy. what is so extraordinary is we actually have major defense issues from sequestration to the pivot towards asia, you name it. and none of this is part of it. and so you mentioned before the budget. what you're seeing here on virtuall
't expect government to solve every problem. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> reporter: it all came on the same day speaker john boehner called the president out for not having the courage or guts to make tough choices on the budget. the president used the power of the podium to push back. >> some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts. by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training. medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. >> reporter: as is typical of most state of the union addresses, the president covered lots of ground. >> our first priority is making america a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing. we must do more to combat climate change. send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months, and i will sign it right away. i ask this congress to declare that women should earn a living equal to their efforts and finally pass the paycheck fairness act this year. >> reporter: not to mention the middle east, afghanistan, counterterrorism, cyber terrorism, and voting r
what he's saying, rubio scored the biggest points when he talked about big government. >> the idea more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard working middle class taxpayers an old idea that's failed every timist been tried. more government won't help you get ahead. it will hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities. it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas. new businesses, and new private-sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. >> republican senator rand paul gave the tea party response and chastised both parties for spending too much. he also talked about limiting the reach of the federal government. >> what america needs is not robin hood but adam smith. in the year we won our independence, adam smith described what creates the wealth of nations, he described a limited government that largely did not interfere with individuals in their pursuit of happiness. all that we are, all that we wish to be is now threatened by the notion that you can have something for nothing, that you can have
developments in the executive order. one is that the federal government has to produce unclassified reports about the cyber threat and distribute them widely to regular businesses that may be the target and the second is that they need to take more of the classified information about the threat and share it beyond the defense sector which is typically where that information sharing has stopped. for people who are concerned about the invasion of an individual's privacy, this is kind of where the rubber meets the road, and critics say that this may be one step closer to really that sort of big data, big brother society that many americans say they fear, jenna. jenna: that is so interesting. there is a fine line here, the people are concerned about wanting to keep us safe but also make sure we can keep our private lives private. a story we'll continue to watch, catherine, thank you so much. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: a desperate search for an escaped inmate. a hunt for a man who police say stabbed an officer four times and somehow got away. how they say he did it coming up. also the vac

isolate a tea party that says it wants small government on the one hand, but really object because -- >> cutting back -- >> cutting back for children who through no fault of their own were born here. rick perry of all people tried to make that comment. what happened? they shot hem down. idealogically and politically it may not be a bad move for obama. smoke them out. make them state just how committed they are to this. yeah. >> really quickly, ari. the other thing is that this whole process, we know the president said this is going to inflame passions, but can the gop debt get through this whout putting their collective foot in their mouth, which is to say it stokes the ayre of passions both in the progressive community and the conservative community and will any -- if they do make it an actual reform, does the rhetoric and resistance that will inevitably come from certain parties of the gop negate the fact that they make on actual policy? >> rubio has the same problem that lindsey graham has, which is can you do enough fire-breathing obama attacks to earn yourself any space to do
of cutting, we saw an unprecedented explosion of government spending and debt. it was unlike anything we've ever seen before in the history of the country. >> last year a gop response by mitch daniels had competition from the herminator. >> in a word i heard the speech, and it came across as a hodge podge of little ideas. >> this year senator marco rubio will deliver the republican response, while rubio was once the standard bearer for the tea party, the group is still opting for its own rival rebuttal from the man who said this after the past election. >> there is one compromise i would be in favor of, and that's that all spending should be cut. >> joining the panel now to discuss is msnbc contributor ari melber and jake sherman. jake, what are the optics here? ran paul on cnn said to me i see it as an extra response, but it doesn't really project party unity to have different responses to the president. >> i think if john boehner and mitch mcconnell had their choice here, they would have one person going forward with the response. you know ran paul is not likely to give his remarks ove
or a government, especially when you are a government, you want to take the proposition that you need to spend money to do things, and later, often make it back at a higher yield. that is the whole concept. so this idea that debt is a bad thing is wrong. >> and now, as you listened to ari say that debt is not a bad word -- >> he is my friend and we just disagreed. >> well, the roads project was earth-moving and more than what we did in the panama canal, and moving billions of tons of earth, but it goes on until 1991, and this is the we do enormous things, and good for the country to have a recognition of the economic and security aspects of it. for the republican party for the all of the moments now, they used to be a party of the big things and now it is a party of no, and party of making all of the big cuts and not do something on this, and can you guys regain something on that? is. >> well, back to the republican president of eisenhower e wwho the country behind him, and also a defense issue to move sections from one part of the country to another. and this is a bold thing and general and w
to get good things done is critical. >> also reminded of the age of big government is over. >> the era of big government. >> that was 1996. that was the year before. >> and that was, of course, bill clinton sort of playing to the crowd and saying we are a different kind of democrat. >> right. it was bill clinton, the new democrat. he was satisfying that the age of old-fashioned big government solutions to all of our problems was over, but, you know, there's a second part to that sentiment, which is that we can't go back to the time when we left everyone to themselves either. he was trying to create a third way. >> how tough is the environment right now inside the white house? take us behind the scenes, behind that curtain. >> what are they doing right now? >> what are they doing right now, and the pressure on staff and the speechwriting team and what happens when they come back with marks on it. >> every white house is different, right? i don't know this one firsthand. i know the one that -- they've got more than 24 hours to go. they're still constructing. they're still writing. he is
